    The service was really bad. No one came over for half an hour, we ordered the food that took forever and then we didn’t see any one again till we wanted to pay and we had to go up to the bar because they was taking so long.

    Took friend for 65th birthday meal 7pm Saturday. 1st choice of starter not available, 2nd choice of starter not available, 1st choice of main not available, 2nd choice of main not available, 1st choice of dessert not available. Food which we could have was good. Extremely disappointed that they were unable to provide the full menu at such an early time on a Saturday. I would hesitate to return any time soon and would not recommend it to anyone.

    Unfortunately the restaurant was really cold which didn’t aid the ambience in anyway and food could have done with being hotter. The service was ok, verging more on the slow side. Coffees came out luke warm and we finished thinking they had forgotten the desserts but then they turned up. I would go again incase they were having a bad day.

    As usual very good however not very pleased that the chain had changed the rules regarding the Gourmet card and had not bothered to tell anyone else. So my recommendation is tempered by a feeling that the chain is being less than honest when it changes its terms.

    Food was good when we were eventually received it but we must have waited nearly 1 hour. Waitress was good, beer good, large party booking was in restaurant so properly reason for waiting so long, food could have been hotter. Would still go back might be a one off.

    Nicely greeted upon arrival, we were led straight to our table. The staff were terrific, welcoming, friendly and happy to assist. Food was good, albeit meat sizes could have been better, but there was certainly enough vegetables and very nice quality.

    Very quiet the night we visited. Staff were very pleasant and promptly seated us. We came mainly because my wife wanted to try the rose veal which Jamie (Oliver) and Jimmy (Docherty) had covered on their Friday night Southend pier café TV food programme. My wife was disappointed and when asked if she would order the veal again, she hesitated which says it all. I chose the lamb medallions and specifically asked if it came pink. The waitress said it would be medium to rare which suited me fine. Both meals arrived well presented. Mine was cooked through which made it well done to my mind and had the effect of making it chewy. Still, we did have a Gourmet Society card which they accepted bringing the price down to what I thought the meal was worth. We would visit again but perhaps try something different next time.

    We went for a birthday lunch on a Sunday and the Restaurant was very busy and noisy but there was a real buzz of people of all ages out, some in large groups, enjoying a leisurely lunch together. The staff were attentive but didn’t hurry us at all and we were able to linger at our table, once we had finished eating, to chat and enjoy the fact that the restaurant had emptied out and quietened down.

    Went here a few years ago and it was good. Seems it’s going downhill. They were pretty empty for a Saturday night and I can see why. They had three beers off on Saturday night!! And this is a pub run by a brewery! Staff are pleasant enough but takes a while to get any attention.

    Booked a table online for 3.30pm and on arrival was told restaurant closed at 3pm but could order a meal at the bar and eat it in the bar area. We both elected to go for Cod in Badger Beer Batter and chips. Batter was very greasy but edible. Not a restaurant I would visit again.

    When we arrived we found that the main restaurant had been flooded and therefore we had to eat in a small bar off to the side of the main area. This room had little atmosphere, not as nice as main restaurant which we have been to many times before so was a bit disappointing. However most of the staff did their best in difficult circumstances so we appreciated their efforts. The food was ok but menu limited no Specials available because of the flood.

    Went for a Sunday roast, had prawn cocktail for starter which was average hence the 3 stars for food. The roast however was lovely I wanted beef but they had run out so had roast chicken portions are huge and the roast is so filling! Chocolate brownie for dessert which was also really good! The waitress serving us was very nice too made conversation and was really attentive. Will be going back.

    Had garlic flatbread which was so greasy it ran off the bread, ham terrine with brioche , well we missed the brioche it was so small, garlic mushrooms were barely warm with more sauce than mushroom. Fish and chips ok, sirloin steak was half medium and half very well done , quite an achievement to do that to one steak , child's cheese and bacon burger not to bad. Coffee and walnut pannacotta extremely sweet , chunks of what appeared to be brown sugar and coated walnut in bottom , all runny , not set , could have pored this one. Children's desert , either ice cream or sorbet but they had run out of sorbet !!!!!!!!for the price and size of the ice cream if bought separately this was extortionate. Not the best meal. Will say the staff are extremely nice and helpful, shame about the food.

    We have visited the restaurant a number of times mainly because of their gluten free options. The GF details are not now stated in the menu and is in a matrix in a separate folder which is quite hard to follow which is not so good. The food and service was very good and has never disappointed. The Moat is very dog friendly. We took our dog there for the first time and all the staff made a fuss of him bringing him water and biscuits. They even have doggy icecream for sale!
